They cross contaminate after assuring you they won’t. Both locations.
Food was awful and cross contaminated anyways
— Not at all
I have Celiac Disease. I’ve eaten here three times in the last year. Each time I’ve had digestive reactions to their food. I thought maybe it was something else but today confirmed that it was the restaurant. I went to the restaurant on any empty stomach. I had asked for the “gluten free salmon eggs Benedict”, coffee, water and orange juice. I believe there is something in the hollandaise sauce since there was only spinach, salmon and a salad.
Terrible place to eat as a celiac - watched worker move gluten and GLUTEN FREE items around in bakery case. Watched as gluten cupcake fell on top of GF cupcake and kept right on going. They had gluten free bakery items located under gluten items. Told waitress about what I experienced and soon manager and asst manager came by to talk to me. The asst manager told me that cross contamination happens constantly and he felt not really safe to eat there. I did offer my expertise to the manager on how to be more celiac friendly (gave him email and cell) but apparently not interested in “bettering” the place. No going back EVER ...
Well, another one bites the dust. After being told initially a couple years back that they were celiac friendly as long as you inform server, I was told by a manager recently that this is no longer so. They simply cannot control cross contamination in the kitchen, so celiacs are not guaranteed to be safe there anymore. I did indeed have a few mystery mishaps that I never figured out, and looking back, I can now see it would have been breakfasts I ate there (even WITH being super clear with server, and being told I’d be fine!). Such a bummer, but I can’t recommend to celiacs!
Waitress was very kind and told the kitchen it was for medical gluten free needs. She assured us she talked to the kitchen staff and the staff is very dedicated to accommodating allergies of any kind. Great experience, great food! We had breakfast and shared the huevos rancheros, cornmeal fruit pancake and Cajun hash browns. All awesome choices!!
the staff was so helpful!! go to gluten free stop—literally everything on the menu is gluten free or can be prepared gf!!
NOT Celiac friendly. Host rolled his eyes when we asked if they had a GF menu. Waitress was clueless. Manager said they don't prepare separately and suggested the Minneapolis location instead.
Edit: Jonathan, do you work there? If so, your post says everything. I posted my review on an app for others looking for GF food as a warning. Why are you here? And no, my nose wasn't pointed in the air - why would I be proud or snobby to have a severely limited diet?
Delicious and so many options!
I called ahead chef was helpful. Wait staff was not so even though I explained I had called ahead. I was glutened.
Amazing Food SEVERAL GF choices. Great service. FYI Parking in the alley ; )
Great options for all meals, but breakfast is my favorite! High quality ingredients and staff is knowledgeable.
Called to see what was available. The person who answered the phone had a attitude and said " it's not like we have a gluten free certified kitchen or anything." Being celiac I would say stay away. This is for the trendy gluten free people.
Among the best breakfasts I've ever had. The GF corn and blueberry pancake was eons beyond the typical mass-market pancakes served elsewhere. The GF toast was a honey multi seed bread, and they knew to serve it without butter (to avoid CC) without my even asking. Even a homemade GF Mac and cheese on the kids menu...my daughter was in heaven! We'll be dreaming of this place from now on. Also, we were too full for the bakery case, but I counted 19 GF options, including some beautiful cakes.
They are very knowledgeable about what you can and cannot have. Also everything is clearly marked on the menu. There is a fair number of GF options.
Have had no problem at this location with cross contamination.
Sorry celiacs this location isn't for you, they make GF and regular flour dishes in the same kitchen! Crazy right? I mean who would dedicate an entire space in their kitchen for 1% of their customers.
If they rolled their eyes at you it's probably because you started out with your nose pointed towards the ceiling when you asked for the gluten free menu.
Good gluten free cajun hashbrowns. The bakery selection is good. The poppyseed muffin I had was okay, but definitely gluten free tasting. Chai tea was nice. I will come back again to try more.
Love the location in Minneapolis so I'm very happy they are now in St. Paul! Delicious food and great gluten free food (including desserts, breads, etc.) options!
Server seemed a little hesitant which scarred me, the service was mediocre in general. Got the salmon benedict which was prettu good, just very small. Very sensitive celiac and did not appear to get sick. Make sure to go over evrrything thoroughly with them
Incredible food! Ordered the quiche Lorraine, hash browns and gluten free toast. The quiche has a potato crust and was savory and delicious. I have celiac and felt totally safe here. Staff knowledgeable and accommodating. 10/10 would go again!
Menu has gf items marked. Li told the waitress I had Celiacs and could not have gluten. She seemed to understand. Brought my soup with regular bread sitting on the edge. She was overloaded and seemed tired. She apologized, but given the understaffing, I decided to move on without taking the risk of contamination.
June 28, 2018. My second review is for the chain at MSP, but this time in the main concorse near the entry to the E and C terminals. We ate off the main menu and sat in the bar. No GF beer. The restaurant has several GF options without any modification. No GF buns for a burger. I had a Cobb salad and was quite happy with the taste, portion, and service. I would eat at this location again, but maybe not the one in my second review (below).
This is for the shop in the F terminal of MSP. It was highly recommended. Have GF bread. Good tasting food. Cross-contamination is an issue here. Easy to see it happening. at grill Hard to draw attention to it and stop them. New to Celiac diagnosis. Hopefully this won't be an issue.
Very gf friendly. Bakery case had gf bagels, brownies and lemon bars. The menu for the sit down restaurant did not note gf items but the server said they had gf toast and was able to tell me which items were gf, which included standard brkfst items. Food was very good.
